Hannah, a modern day teenager, has to celebrate yet another Jewish holiday with her family – but this year will be different. Little does she know her world is about to change. With Hannah, we become caught up in a 1942 world of survival, friendship, faith and family. Jane Yolen wrote: “This script by Prime Stage honors the book more than any other one attempted. Mr. Kornhauser got the heart, the blood, the bone of my story.”

Meet and hear Jane Yolen share her inspiration and how she wrote The Devil’s Arithmetic following the Sunday matinee performance on May 11 – “Remember, O, Remember: How I wrote The Devil’s Arithmetic” – Sponsored in part by Classrooms without Borders and presented in partnership with the Holocaust Center of Greater Pittsburgh.

Ticket includes show and Jane Yolen's presentation.

Note: Performance ends at 4:30 and Jane’s speech will begin at 5:15 with light appetizers/drinks to be served between.
